Some antique pieces & pretty red berries
decorate the front area of my house.
My shed window with it's lace curtain,
green glass, and red berries . I like keeping
my decorations simple in and outside
of my old house which was built in 1891.

This doll was bought from an old woman at a tag sale.
She told me it was very old , I'm just not sure how old.
It is filled with sawdust . I know this because if I
move the doll around at all the sawdust comes right
through the cloth.
This Teddy is made with real fur and I thinkit's from Germany. I'm not sure what kind offur it is . I bought this bear at an estate sale &the previous owner was a furrier. The bearalso has glass eyes.
I love this Kangaroo & baby . It came from
the same estate sale as the bear . This may also
be from Germany because most of their things
were. I think that it may be an early Steiff
animal that was made before they started
putting the trade mark button in the ear.
That would bring us to early 1900's . This
Kangaroo is made of mohair I think and stuffed
very tightly with straw. The stitching is very
sturdy also & it has glass eyes.
~So if anyone can tell me more about these items
please leave me a comment.~

This pretty lady dressed in blue was living
at The Goodwill Shoppe when I found her.
For $5.00 I rescued her and took her home .
She's a handmade doll made by a lady
who is local to this area .
These two ladies above are very old dolls
that are also musical. They were found
at a tagsale & adopted by me for only
$2.00 each. I think when I'm working
during the day they all run down to
the kitchen to drink tea and nibble
on my sweets that I have hidden.
That's why my goodies always
disappear so fast !
